Australia is fighting for an automatic spot in the World Cup while avoiding the long way to the World Cup through the play-offs. Meanwhile, China would be hoping to somehow achieve at least a top 3 finish.

However with just a few points separating the teams and half of the tournament left to be played the situation in Group A is wide open.

The teams are set to go up against each other at a neutral venue in the Sharjah Stadium. Read our Preview, Predictions, and Betting Tips with Analysis here.

China vs Australia Prediction and Analysis

The Socceroos started off the 3rd round with 3 straight wins. They were unfortunate to drop 2 points against Japan as in the 86th minute the ball bounced off Behich after it rebounded off the crossbar and ended up as an own goal.

They held Saudi Arabia to a scoreless draw at home in their previous game which keeps them sitting second in the table 3 points behind Saudi Arabia.

China on the other hand has not had the best of runs in the tournament. They beat Vietnam at home and kept hold of a point against Oman at home. They however suffered losses against all top 3 teams in the group.

This puts them 5th in the table 5 points behind Japan in the play-offs spot.

Australia has been incredible in the tournament and are favourites to fly to Qatar next year from this group. China after suffering a one-sided loss against this team previously in the tournament are unlikely to impose any challenge as they have been mediocre throughout the tournament.

Despite not managing many points the Dragon’s Team team have scored in 3 consecutive games. With the hosts conceding goals more often than not, a BTTS should prove to be a fair option.
